When I was in my teens and twenties I loved to sew!
I made everything I wore except my favorite denim jeans.
All of my "tops" (that was the fashion word back then),
blazers, pants, dresses and even dresses for special occasions.
At one time I thought of being a tailor.
I loved how a garment was constructed.
My favorite part was going to the fabric stores.
My Mom and I went every Saturday.
First we went to Montgomery Ward and to Sears.
Then as my tailoring skills improved we went to
my favorite fabric stores in Denver, Colorado.
Buttons and Trims & Wonder Fabrics.
From Italian Wools, French Cottons and very soft Silks.
Buttons that put the finishing touches on each garment.
That was one of my special Passions in my life.
Now my passion is Papercrafting!
|Passion Flowers stamp is from Flourishes.|
When I purchase a stamp and embellishments I feel like I am tailoring again.
Stamps are like choosing the pattern.
Cardstock are like choosing the fabric.
Embellishments are like choosing the buttons, thread, ribbons and trim.
|This Passion Flower is for everyone at Flourishes!|
One of my favorite stamp companies is Flourishes!
Flourishes designers draw beautiful florals into amazing stamps.
Stamps I love to color!
Simply... Thank you to Jan Marie and her team at Flourishes
for giving me my new passion!
And I wish you all the best in your Passions!
